    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider pay increases to keep employees from leaving, or to convert key contractors into full time employees.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Some mobility between HCA sites, and a better likelihood at getting hired at other HCA locations
    -Depending on your department, some chance for mobility and management opportunities

    Cons

    -Treats their "front line" employees like crap. HR is useless.
    -Does not at all listen to what their employees on the ground have to say
    -Sloppily run facilities, bad hiring decisions, which all contribute to lower standard of patient care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Listen to your "low level" employees, not just management, and tell your management teams to get it together. Stop treating your employees like crap and burning through them faster than you can hire.

    Pros

    Depending on department, my experience was that I was able to have a flexible schedule as long as I maintained my own workload.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. The atmosphere is very toxic and childish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your strong employees and develop them to grow up the ladder as opposed to keeping them stagnant.
